Mohammad Amir – Virat Kohli is the best in this era and he just cannot be compared
In a video shared by ICA Sports, Mohammad Amir said that Virat Kohli shouldn’t be compared with any other batter in the sport as he is the best of this time while Amir hailed the way Kohli scored an unbeaten 82 against Pakistan.
Former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir loves India’s great Virat Kohli, and it isn’t a secret. On numerous occasions, Amir has named Kohli as his ‘favorite’.
After Kohli slammed a match-winning 82-run knock against Pakistan in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022, Amir depicted the India star as the best player of this era.
For most of the match, it seemed to be India will fall short of chasing the target but Kohli continued to put stock in himself and played a crucial role in the thrilling victory.
In a video shared by ICA Sports, Mohammad Amir said that Virat Kohli shouldn’t be compared with any other batter in the sport as he is the best of this time. Amir hailed the way Kohli scored an unbeaten 82 against Pakistan.
However, Amir also focused on the importance of mindset, temperament, and hard-working attitudes, especially in big games. These are the qualities that Amir feels put Kohli aside from the rest.
“I’ve told this in many interviews, why do I say Virat Kohli is my favorite? He is the best in this era. He just cannot be compared! It’s because I have bowled to him as well and the level of temperament, the mindset he carries towards the game, his work ethic, and the way he handles the pressure, I don’t think in this time any batsman can handle this sort of pressure as he did,”the left-arm pacer said.
“People begin comparing him with different batsmen. He just does not have any comparisons. And yes, this has been one of his best innings in T20 (82* against Pakistan) and he has said it himself. Out of nowhere, he just took the game away from Pakistan. And this is the recognition of a big player, people say he wasn’t in form, but a big player is that who steps up in high-pressure situations, and what Virat did, only he could have done!”added Amir.
After his game-dominating show against Pakistan, Kohli proceeded with his strong form against the Netherlands.
He stayed unbeaten on 62 off 44 to produce a significant partnership with Suryakumar Yadav. India dominated the game by 56 runs to reinforce their semi-final qualification hopes.
